Cotoneaster franchetii is a great option for shady or coastal sites. It has grey/green evergreen foliage between which stand blush-white flowers in the spring, followed by orange berries. It is ideal for attracting wildlife and will add lots of interest to the garden, as the birds feed on the orange berries. Flowers June-August. Bare root plants grow 20-40cm per year.
Bare Root hedging plants are a great, cost-effective way for you to achieve your hedging goals. They are grown in an open environment, exposed to natural conditions, which allows these plants to develop with no restrictions. When opting for this root type, you will receive well established plants with sturdy root systems as a result of their growing method. Given the way in which they are grown, bare rooted plants are available from November until May as this is the time of year when the plants are dormant and can be safely lifted from the field. This category mostly consists of native, deciduous hedging species which many of them flower and/or berry so they make great hedges for wildlife and provide seasonal interest.
